go ahead! baby your babies, people!

Two Harvard researchers EXPLAIN WHY.

Choice quotes from the article:

"The pair say that American childrearing practices are influenced by fears
that children will grow up dependent. But they say that parents are on the wrong
track: physical contact and reassurance will make children more secure and
better able to form adult relationships when they finally head out on their own."

" 'I think there's a real resistance in this culture to caring for children,'
Commons said. But "punishment and abandonment has never been a good way to get
warm, caring, independent people.' "

Hi Kate,
Could you let us know of any changes in laws regarding Loco Parentis and children with Autism diagnosis?
